Li Zhanshu said that China is a good friend, a good comrade, and a good brother. Not long ago, General Secretary Xi Jinping and President of the State had a telephone conversation with the First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba and President of the State Diaz-Canel, and reached important consensus on further deepening the special friendly relations between the two parties and the two countries and promoting cooperation in various fields. China is willing to work with Cuba to actively promote the implementation of the consensus reached by the leaders of the two countries. It is necessary to enhance political mutual trust, firmly support each other on issues concerning each other’s core interests, resolutely oppose unilateralism, protectionism, and oppose blockades, sanctions, suppression, and containment of other countries at every turn, and deepen daring friendship. We will deepen trade, investment, agriculture, new energy, tourism, bio-pharmaceuticals and other fields and strengthen cooperation in the fight against the epidemic, so as to reap more tangible results.

Li Zhanshu pointed out that this year marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China. The Chinese Communist Party has been able to lead the Chinese people to achieve historic achievements and has received the wholehearted support of the people of the whole country. First, it has always adhered to its ideals and beliefs, adhered to its original mission, sought happiness for the Chinese people, and rejuvenated the Chinese nation, and became the mainstay of China’s development and progress. The second is to always pay attention to theoretical construction. Socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new era. Under the guidance of Xi Jinping’s Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, China is striving unremittingly for the comprehensive construction of a modern socialist country and the realization of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. The third is to always insist on seeking truth from facts, proceed from reality in everything, and follow the development path that suits its own national conditions in accordance with the actual conditions of the country. The fourth is to always attach great importance to self-construction, maintain the spirit of self-revolution, and become a Marxist ruling party that has always been at the forefront of the times and can withstand the tests of various storms.

Strengthen the exchange of experience on issues such as democracy and the rule of law, poverty reduction and development, maintain close communication on major international and regional issues, and jointly safeguard the interests of the two countries and developing countries.

Lasso said that the friendship between Cuba and China has lasted forever, has been tested and developed continuously. Congratulations on the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China. Cuba firmly adheres to the one-China principle and opposes any interference in China’s internal affairs. The Cuban National People’s Congress is willing to strengthen exchanges with China’s National People’s Congress and make every effort to promote the development of Cuba-China relations and cooperation in various fields.
